Hi Tony,

There is an OWASP Women in ApoSec initiative: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Women_In_AppSec 

Up until now we have mainly run events at the AppSec conferences. Looks like you've some great ideas for further outreach so we should definitely all collaborate on this

The aim is to make a practical difference and reduce barriers at all levels, which would hopefully result in attracting and retaining more women in cybersecurity. We're looking at a number of activities including speaking with schools/colleges, workshops/training, developing guide literature for companies to reduce barriers, etc.
